The organizers of the march insisted that the participants have the right to walk the streets of Jerusalem.

Hundreds of Israeli nationalists belonging to far-right groups took part in a flag-raising march in occupied East Jerusalem that the Palestinians deemed provocative.

The new Israeli government agreed to amend the course of the annual march commemorating Israel’s capture of East Jerusalem in the 1967 war.

The marchers shouted and whistled and beat drums as they gathered at Bab al-Amud (Damascus Gate) leading to the Old City in East Jerusalem.

The Israeli police clashed with Palestinian demonstrators who were protesting against the march in Jerusalem, which resulted in the injury of a number of them, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent. And the police cleared the area around Bab al-Amoud of Jerusalemites before the march reached the place.
